    Winning a high-profile case has given a huge boost to New York attorney DeAngelo Di Meglio's career - and his love life. Too bad fame hasn't helped him win the woman he's been infatuated with for years. Tired of waiting and wondering, Angelo books a trip to the singles-only Bahamas resort where Peyton Mahoney is celebrating her thirtieth birthday. And just as he hoped, when they finally connect, the chemistry is mind-blowing....

    A Madaris Christmas Wedding

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    What made the experience of listening to Sycamore Row the most enjoyable?

    The reader and how he gave personality, through his narration, to each character.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot definitely kept me on the edge of my seat. I hated to leave my car sometimes because I wanted to know what happened next.


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His grasp of each character's personality.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, absolutely.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good book. It truly grasped what race relations were and are in the deep South. The book was honest and gritty.

    It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

    Would you try another book from Gillian Flynn and/or Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ?

    No way.


    What was most disappointing about Gillian Flynn’s story?

    The way it did not trasition from one chapter to the next. It was like you only knew it was a new chapter by either the change in thought, or which character was speaking.


    What didn’t you like about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance?

    Their performance was just ok.


    What character would you cut from Gone Girl?

    All of them!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is not worth waisting a credit on. I seldom write reviews, but I felt compeled to warn people about this one.

    A New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Brenda Jackson has won numerous awards for her contemporary African-American romances. In Jamaica for a well-deserved vacation, city planner Darcy Owens is stunned by the sight of a chocolate-skinned god in the distance. Upon closer inspection, however, it turns out this dream man is York Ellis, an arrogant ex-cop - and notorious bachelor - Darcy knows all too well. But when her life is threatened, he offers her protection and sparks begin to fly between them.

    What made the experience of listening to Bachelor Undone the most enjoyable?

    The reader's voice. She was passionate in the way she read the book and she made each character unique. I also liked the way she spoke the ethnic phrases.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All of them, they were each unique and added to the book.


    Which character – as performed by Shari Peele – was your favorite?

    Darci Owens!!!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Darci and York made love for the first time and every time after that.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was so hot I found myself testifing with my hand in the air every time they made love. I love the way Shari described the sex scenes it was very erotic. Well done. I can't wait to listen to more books read by her.

    Investigator Drey St. John never dreamed helping the Braddocks discover the truth behind their father's fatal crash would lead to his own mother's shocking confession: Senator Braddock was Drey's biological father. Determined to solve the case, Drey enlisted all-work-and-no-play Charlene Anderson's help. But the more time he spent with the beautiful forensic scientist, the more he realized their sharp banter fronted a simmering mutual attraction that wouldn't be denied.
